UF Health Celebrity Gridiron Challenge benefiting CMN Hospitals at UF Health Shands Children's HospitalAre you ready for some football? This family friendly, all-ages event takes place Saturday, April 21 at Westwood Middle School, 3215 NW 15 Ave., Gainesville, FL 32605. Spectators welcome!

This event will feature:

  • Flag football tournament
  • Food trucks
  • Tailgate games
  • Local celebrity appearances

There are several ways to get involved:

  1. Register a team. For a $100 registration fee, teams can play as either competitive (bracket-style competition) or non-competitive (casual-style competition not competing to win). Choose a team captain and name, select your style of play, recruit 10 to 12 players and start practicing!
    • If your department wishes to sponsor a team, it may do so. Celebrity Gridiron Challenge is purely voluntary. Anyone interested is welcome to join a team — especially family and friends.
  2. Donate. You can donate to a team or participant online or by check.
  3. Volunteer. Event organizers are looking to fill several volunteer positions. There are many different opportunities to volunteer at the event.

Register your team and find more information at UFHealthgridiron.com.

For volunteer information or questions regarding the event, please contact Jessica Maier, UF Health Shands development coordinator, at 352-265-7276 or jmai0001@shands.ufl.edu.
